AP Exams Registration Information
Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Higley High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition. Colleges review high school transcripts and look for honors and advanced placement classes, as well as scores earned on their AP exams.
For the 2016 AP exams, students at Higley High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.
This year each AP exam costs $95.00. Tax credit donations will be accepted to pay for AP exams. Higley High School desires that every student be able to take their AP exams. For financial aid paperwork, please see Patti Smith in the counseling office.

Thank you for your support
It is with sincere gratitude that the Higley Unified School District extends thanks to the community for supporting the Maintenance and Operations Override during Tuesday’s election. With the outcome of Tuesday’s vote, the district will be able to bring $8.1 million back into the budget for the next five years. This will avoid the need for $1.8 million additional reductions at this time.
“The Higley community is incredibly supportive of our schools, including parent and community volunteers in the classroom, fundraising efforts, attendance at student events and athletics,” Superintendent Dr. Mike Thomason said. “This vote is another way the people of the community have gathered around students, teachers, staff and schools.”
When the Higley Unified School District governing board put the 15% maintenance and operations override on the ballot, members identified priority areas for the funding during the first year, including:
• Increasing teacher compensation for retention and recruitment;
• Maintaining and improving elementary specials such as arts, music and
physical education, and district athletics and arts;
• Providing staffing to reduce average class sizes;
• Supporting gifted, special education and all-day kindergarten;
• Providing education resources to classrooms.
Budget discussions for 2016-17 will get under way in the next few weeks. The public is welcome to attend any work study session or general governing board meeting to be a part of those talks.
Higley Unified School District is a 12,000-student district serving students in preschool through high school from Gilbert and Queen Creek.
AZ Merit Update
In Spring 2015, Higley Unified School District and schools across Arizona administered the first AzMERIT assessments. These assessments were designed to cover language arts and math.
Over the next few months, districts, schools and parents will receive results. Several different reports are available to help families understand the results. The district has put together an AzMERIT Parent Resource page to provide additional information.
To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.
